Officials Say Suspect in Killings of California Deputies Was Deported Twice

Fox News, October 26, 2014

The suspect alleged to have shot three northern California sheriff’s deputies Friday, killing two, was deported twice and has a criminal record, federal officials said late Saturday.

A U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman said that the fingerprints of the suspected shooter match those of a man named Luis Enrique Monroy-Bracamonte. Monroy-Bracamonte was initially deported to Mexico in 1997 after being convicted of drug possession in Arizona. Four years later, he was arrested and deported again for an unspecified offense.


The suspect initially identified himself as Marcelo Marquez, 34, of Salt Lake City. He is charged with two counts each of murder, attempted murder and carjacking. The suspect’s wife, Janelle Marquez-Monroy, was also arrested Friday and charged with carjacking and attempted murder.


The shootings began when Sacramento County sheriff’s Deputy Danny Oliver, 47, was shot in the forehead with an assault rifle at close range as he checked out a suspicious car in a motel parking lot.

The suspects have talked to investigators, Bonner said, but what sparked the shootings remained unclear.

“‘Why,’ I guess, will remain a question for a long time,” he said. “Why was his reaction so violent?”


Oliver, a 15-year veteran of the department, left a wife and two daughters. After he was killed, the gunman shot Anthony Holmes, 38, of Sacramento at least twice, including once in the head, during an attempted carjacking. He was in fair condition.

The attackers then stole a pickup truck and fled about 30 miles northeast into neighboring Placer County.

Two deputies who approached the pickup while it was parked alongside a road were shot with an AR-15-type assault weapon and never had a chance to return fire, Erwin said. The gunman fled into a neighborhood near a high school and ran into a home. Police used tear gas to force him to surrender.

Homicide Detective Michael David Davis Jr., 42, died at a hospital 26 years to the day after his father, for whom he was named, died in the line of duty as a Riverside County deputy.

Deputy Jeff Davis was treated for a gunshot wound to the arm. The two deputies are not related.

    More “Dreamers” doing what they do best. What’s not to like about them?

  • Periapsis

    It’s time to treat the likes of those illegals who shot the deputies for what they are, enemy insurgents. In other words, police should have chased and then killed them with machine guns loaded with fragmenting or expanding ammunition. When they kill police officers brazenly, they will have no compunctions about slaughtering white children at a school or playground.

  • Really deported twice, or just “deported” in the sense of receiving two deportation orders from two judges which were subsequently ignored?

    • Who Me?

      If he was really deported, he was probably back home eating dinner before the deputies who escorted him over the border got back to the station to fill out their reports.
      But we have to remember that diversity is our greatest strength and family values don’t stop at the Rio Grande. They’re honest and hardworking. They are here to do the jobs Americans won’t do. They are just looking for a better place to raise their families of (10+) children, ready to assimilate and become loyal, law-abiding American citizens. (Like this SOB.)

    Determined “Dreamer” and a cop killer? Move over Mumia, we may have a new sought after commencement speaker at Liberal colleges.

  • MekongDelta69

    Another one of NoBama‘s illegal aliens… I mean, ‘model citizens.’

    Too bad they didn’t grease him, along with “Mr. Axe” and that lunatic in Canada.

  • james AZ

    deported twice and last one is death sentence for him……..

  • dd121

    If the Dems enforced the law the guy would have been in Mexico, where he belonged, and no innocent human would have been harmed in the making of that enforcement.

  • I wrote the following on my site about this horror:

    “Two deputies would be alive if it weren’t for Obama’s negligence. Instead of welcoming illegals with benefits paid for by taxpayers, the USA should be putting them to work on prison chain gangs. Then deporting them. Life on a chain gang would insure that most of them would never come back.”

    I’ll add that if the deputies had shot and killed the scumbag the liberals would likely make another Mike Brown situation of it. They’re going to keep looking for a black or brown victim of white cop racism in order to turn the police black and brown so that the cops will fire on whites come American Revolution 2.0.

    It’s a conspiracy folks. There’s method in what seems like liberal craziness.

    • Periapsis

      The police know whites will fire back, and not just at them.

      • Sick of it

        Hatchets save bullets. Although a full-fledged axe would be better.

    • TruthBeTold

      When it comes to minorities, you’re always damned if you do and damned if you don’t.

      Your only safe option is to avoid them. Unfortunately their compulsion to be around you makes that impossible.

    • Alexandra1973

      I agree.

      And I also think that there’s a White backlash being built up on purpose. Order out of chaos and all that.

      Of course there are differences among the races. Of course we should have our own nations. But just make sure you’re not becoming someone’s pawn.

  • TruthBeTold

    Deported twice? He’ll be the poster boy for our racist immigration policies.

    • Not really, the story is already buried by the MSM.

  • Luca

    Hispanic family values. They are raping our country in every way imaginable.

  • Simonetta

    I still think that anyone caught in the USA after having been deported once should be flown to Afghanistan, given $100 and an AK-47 (with the ammo stored at a different location), and just dumped at the end of the runway. The Afghans won’t like it, but they’ve all been bought and paid for, so they can just play polo with Mexican heads, or sell them all off as slaves for all I care.

    Not our problem any more. I think that Stalin did this with his uppity minorities. Not shipping them to Afghanistan, but to one or another of the distant ‘republics’ of the USSR.

    This breaks every known treaty and Universal Declaration of Human Rights and Constitutional guarantee of basic dignity and all that other good stuff. But all that was designed to deal with the world realities that existed at the end of WWII, and doesn’t reflect the current realities of third-world’ers breeding like rabbits in a carrot factory.

    But I’m a human too, so I’ll accept a basic high IQ and beauty test (since beauty is the most subtle form of intelligence) for the unwashed billions desperate to be washed up upon our shores. Those passing get a dumpy crumbling 70’s disco apartment in California. Everyone else gets a one-way ticket to some Islamic hell-hole.

    • IstvanIN

      If caught in the US illegally the first time one should be deported. The second time should result in capital punishment.

      • Periapsis

        How about being shot to death on sight by soldiers?

    • Sick of it

      “But I’m a human too, so I’ll accept a high- IQ or gorgeousness test”

      We haven’t suffered from such “terrible” policies in centuries.

  • John Smith

    The number of US citizens killed daily by illegal aliens should be a national scandal. Between drunk driving and homicide, it is about 25 per day.

    Ah yes, but another issue that the anti-white media cabal won’t allow to see the light of day.

    Hmmm…I wonder if there is even ONE african, asian, m eastern country that would tolerate 25 of its citizens per day killed at the hands of whites who were illegally in the country.

  • WR_the_realist

    Obama wants to give Luis Enrique Monroy-Bracamonte a work visa.

    • mikekingjr

      Hope he gets a job testing rope with his neck.

  • Sick of it

    Why didn’t they shoot him to death? They would kill a white man for refusing to surrender his constitutionally protected firearms during an unconstitutional traffic stop…but I guess foreigners have more rights.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    According to the AP article, ICE has filed a bill of detainer so that they can pursue deportation as soon as he is charged.

    Why? So he can be deported only to return and kill two more cops?

    “was deported twice and has a criminal record…”

    Well, that didn’t work out very well, did it?

    And why should it when the Veep said they’re already Americans, same as your or me, maybe better and with far more rights. This guy had so much love for us that he came here three times, just ask Jeb Bush.

    Was the AR-15 an Eric Holder special?

    The story is already dead in California and has been since yesterday.

    Placer Couny Sheriff’s Deputy Michael David Davis Jr. was killed in the line of duty exactly 26 years after his father, Riverside County Sheriff’s Deputy Michael David Davis, died in a helicopter crash.

    • none of your business

      Does that mean they will take him from the county jail to an ICE detention center as soon as he is charged? Then they will dump him over the border and he will be back next day free to carjack and kill more Americans. Had those deputies been black or brown would ICE want to free him so quickly? I doubt it.

  • Ograf

    Doing the work Americans don’t want to do.

  • If it weren’t for the pc smog covering california, the officer, understanding the dangers and unpredictability of browns, would have approached the suspicious vehicle with gun drawn, and ready to fire. He may have survived, and stopped the filth before he had a chance to kill and wound others.

    As it was, a veteran of so many years knew better, but likely didnt want to approach with his weapon out because he didnt want to deal with the ensuing bullcrap that MAY have happened.

    I place no blame on the officer, but i DO place blame on our society as a whole, his death is another of literally hundreds of thousands which DIDN’T NEED TO HAPPEN! Thats the true insanity here… he didnt need to die, his family didn’t need to face spending every day from here on out without him.

    By our negligence, by our apathy, this happened. How many more have to die before we DO something. We let this happen, day by day, we ALLOW this to continue, because its easier! Because sitting here and reading about it is safe, it requires no effort whatsoever to watch and shake our heads and *tsk tsk*

    That piece of filth brown illegal should have been executed the second time he was caught here illegally. One strike, deportation, second time youre caught, youre a foreign invader and you WILL NOT be back a third time.

  • Oh, forgot to add, the cops should have gunned this piece of filth down, and in better days, that would have been his just reward.

  • M&S

    If it truly is an assault class weapon, that still means a barrel length of at least 10″. He had to rock back in the car to bring it up and lean out the window to bring it to bear on the guy behind. All of which takes time and has trigger-tells (twisting in seat, removing seat belt, Linda Blairing, complex shoulder/elbow, linear, motions).
    Being in a position where that’s possible without an immediate control response is bad policing.
    I am _not_ putting these two officers down for their victimization, but whenever they do a suspicious vehicle incident in my State, there are TWO cars present and they flash their lights and announce themselves over the loudspeaker with a blat on the ‘notifier’ if the perp/s happen to be ‘busy’.
    If the teeners in heat don’t acknowledge, they get another blat and told to stick their hands out the window. If they don’t IMMEDIATELY comply with that, you go to guns and hard contact rules which is to say behind the door or fender with sights on their tires if not their heads while help rolls.
    Usually a Sergeant’s car with his own AR in the trunk.
    There is also, _always_ a plate check before you move up to query the driver and if the vehicle has dated/foreign plates or is notified as being stolen, again, you skip right over a couple of force escalation levels with not just one backup but often 2-3. These then front and back the vehicle and make escape all but impossible as the threat now has to shoot backwards and forwards just to clear his escape lane.
    An Assault Weapon (civilianized M4 clone for instance) will drill soft body armor, simply because the round is smaller caliber with higher sectional density (impact force on a narrower frontage) and is coming out of the muzzle at anything up to twice the muzzle velocity (say 900-1,200 vs. 2,450 fps) with a potential steel core penetrator besides.
    It is not a super atomic hand cannon unless you let it be so.
    And getting face shot at close range with an AR of any class is a tragedy because if you know your sidearm, you can beat their long gun to first employment, just about every time.

    Just doing a job Americans won’t do.

    Today, 10/29 Governor Brown made a speech on the capitol steps welcoming “everyone, including illegal aliens to California.” A reporter asked him outright if he planned to attend the deputies funeral. He could not comment on his plans.
    Timing of the speech with the murder of the deputies is interesting.
